This is the original
Hobie Surfboards Brochure. It was given to Whittier grommet Pat Reid by Hobie Alter himself at his Dana Point surf shop back in June of 1960. Pat kept it in pristine condition for 46 years before finally giving it up. Thanks, Pat!
The two interior pages of this bi-fold brochure include shots of Mike Doyle at Makaha and Greg Noll at Waimea Bay, along with text by Hobie Alter. "The Dana Point Shop was the first real surfboard shop and remains the only building designed and built exclusively for surfboard manufacturing," Hobie wrote.
